I did get my 360 back last week. Sadly, it has a different serial number so I am having to go through tech support to get my XBLA games working correctly again. This is a total PITA, but life goes on. Maybe in a month or two the aggravating 360 DRM issue will be behind me again.
I picked up RezHD and N+ from XBLA. both amazing games. RezHD is an amazing trace / psychedelic shooter. N+ is a platformer, somewhat in the style of Jumpman but much fancier – very simple graphics but the focus is 100% gameplay. N+ is based on the flash-based game N.
For my commute time, I picked up God of War Chains of Olympus for the PSP. I haven’t played any of the God of War games (PS2 games) but I keep hearing how amazing they are, so it seemed like a good time to try one.
I played more Portal (from The Orange Box), I now have “most” of the achievements. Portal is easily, in my opinion, one the top five games of 2007 and when bundled with the Half-Life 2 series and Team Fortress 2, you just can’t go wrong with Orange Box. I plan to get back into Half Life Episode One this weekend.
